Martin Wiles: Who’s Telling Whom? — 16 Comments

  1. I wouldn’t give anything for my family’s stories. I didn’t know it at the time, but they gave me a sense of purpose, and responsiblity. Ultimately, I was a part of something greater than what my eyes could see, but this natural legacy pales in comparison to the spiritual one given us by our heavenly Father. We are a part of something greater than we can comprehend.

  2. I grew up hearing the stories of my mother’s family. I loved hearing them, but now our best storyteller is no longer with us. Her memory issues caused her to tell the same stories over and over in the space of just an hour sometimes. I never minded. I loved hearing them, and nobody could tell them like Betty! My father’s family didn’t have as many stories, but I didn’t realize it until it was to late to hear more of them. Thank you for blessing me with this devotion.

  3. Martin this is a great topic. Sharing our family stories and history is important. Thanks for penning this.

  4. Thank you for sharing! Jesus always used stories as they paint a wonderful picture in our minds!

  5. All too often our desire to hear the stories comes too late. Thank you for the encouragement to preserve and share both our family stories and our legacy of faith.

  6. Thanks, Martin. Storytelling was a big deal in our family, too. Still is. My mother is 98 and still enjoys telling all her stories to me and my daughters. I cherish them and hope to fit them into a book someday where they can live forever.

  7. Thanks for sharing Martin. I have wonderful memories of shared stories from family members also.
